The Council has adopted the consultation document for its Long Term Plan 2015-25 and is now seeking public feedback on its proposals.
The Plan covers everything we do over the next 10 years and beyond. It also outlines options for dealing with an estimated $1.2 billion funding shortfall resulting from the earthquakes.
Public consultation on the Plan runs from Tuesday 17 March until midday Tuesday 28 April.
Those making submissions can ask to be heard in person at public hearings held in May. Councillors will consider this feedback before they finalise the Plan at the end of June.
